Rioja Gran Reserva, Cune, CVNE

Rioja Gran Reserva, Cune, CVNE

Manual harvest with field and sorting table selection, mostly from Las Anchas plot, where the Tempranillo vines are over 60 year old. After destemming, the grapes were fermented in concrete vats at temperatures between 82 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Total maceration time was 20 days. Afterwards the wine was placed in new French oak for malolactic fermentation. The wine spent nearly three years in a mix of used American and French oak barrels. Racking was done every 6 months. After oak ageing, the wine was bottled and spent another three years in our underground cellars.

Review:
Woodsy raspberry and currant aromas are dry and distant, while this gran reserva from a difficult vintage feels solid and gets the job done. Toast, coffee and wood spice notes accent raspberry and plum flavors, while a steady finish is dry feeling and tastes lightly spiced. The future is now for this. Drink through 2023.
